in place at the terrorist surveillance program that is now referred to as the nsa program, basically, what it did was it allowed us, and i am confident of the program we put in place and we have not been involved in the classified stuff -- but the program we put in place saved as general alexander has said at nsa must stop over 50 attacks on the united states and our friends overseas over the course of the last 10 or 12 years. we put in place the and enhanced interrogation program, waterboarding. some people so that was torture. i do not believe it was torture. ksm may have felt it was torture. the fact was that the enhanced interrogation program was signed off by the justice department using techniques we used on our and people in training, it was not torture, it was a good program that allowed us to develop the intelligence we needed to keep america safe for 7 1/2 years.[applause] and it worked. the record speaks for itself. the cia put out a classified report in 2004. ksm was subjected to enhanced interrogation. a report was published, classified by the cia, and it has been declassified
returning from his vacation overnight. and he is already on the defense over the latest details in the nsa spying scandal. >> reporter: good morning. the white house says the violation don't reflect any willful law breaking. the detail report white house aides say nsa is aggressively monitoring itself. more documents leaked about the nsa the national secure agency listening in on people's phone calls or reading their emails and failing to report their violations to the frn isa court. some members of congress find the latest leak about the nsa more troubling. senator rand paul wants to take the scandal to the highest court in the land. >> the only way to fine justice you have to hear both side. there needs to be a discussion from people who are a little bit more skeptical of the nsa in an open court, i think, before the supreme court on this program. >> reporter: the latest information comes from documents that nsa leaker edward snowden released. they detail thousands of privacy violations made by nsa. president obama denies the government is abusing the programs. congressman pete king who
correspondent has our report. >> reporter: general keith alexanderer the head of the nsa revealed a dramatic new step to crack down and prevent system administrators from leaking classified documents. revealingt at a cyber security conference he is slashing by 90% the nearly 1,000 systems administrators employed by his agency or hired as contractors. >> what we are in the process of doing not fast enough is reducing our system administrators by about 90% for the first reason which was to make our networks more defensible and more secure. >> reporter: an nsa official told fox the agency had been planning the cuts before the leaks but is now accelerating them to reduce the number of outside people with access to sensitive information. the nsa official saying the move will provide greater granularity of control. the move comes as president obama is facing new questions about how extensive the nsa surveillance programs are. after the "new york times" reported the nsa is searching the contents of vast amounts of american's e-mails and text communicati communications, not just if you are contacting a
dropping. the nsa said it made mistakes when it accidentally tapped into your private communications. critics including those here in washington say that's not a good enough excuse. a fair and balanced debate with two key members of congress. >>> hillbilly hoopla. one couple's camouflage wedding came true when a duck dynasty member crashed the wedding. >>> plus, another baseball player off the roster. we'll tell you who he is. i'm shannon bream. america's news headquarters live from the nation's capitol starts right now. >>> and we begin with the chaos in egypt. egyptian forces cracking down on the muslim brotherhood as the military struggles to keep control of the country. they just raided the homes of muslim brotherhood members in an attempt to break up massive protests planned around the supreme court there. more than 800 people have been killed in violent demonstrations in less than a week. could the country be on the brink of civil war? leland vittert is monitoring the latest developments from our middle east bureau. leland? >> reporter: shannon, at least right now it appears so
sources that the nsa can't determine the full extent what he took. a new report out in "wall street journal" that points to new details about the nsa surveillance reach. the report says the nsa can monitor 75% of all u.s. internet traffic. much more than had been publicly disclosed. i want to bring in alex burns and lauren fox. good morning. >> good morning. >> so, alex, is this like a spigot? things keep dripping out over time? i mean, does it mean these stores get less attention and less gets done because people sort of feel like it's the sky is falling? or is there some movement building around this when it comes to more transparency? >> chris, i think we are going to see, going into certainly 2014 and then as you see politicians, i think you'll see a intensifying discussion about this. every couple of days there is some new story what exactly the nsa is up to or some sort of personality driven drama like we have seen with eric snowden and glenn greenwald the last couple of days and keeps washington focused on this and prompt folks in the senate and house to weigh in on exactly h
, complaints about the surveillance snooping. have you noticed? lately just the opposite. >> the nsa program is proving itself work yet again. >> the good news is we picked up intelligence and that's what whether do. that's what nsa does. its sole purpose is to get intelligence to protect americans from attack. >> with we did not have this programs we wouldn't be able to listen in on the bad guys. >> neil: this is just -- using a terror threat to run roughshod over common sense and our constitution. and by the way, patrick to your point, as if we know these programs were responsible for any of the information we have. >> no, no. the taking -- i need to come back to what you just said about the american future fund. anything something i talk about yesterday. bob bauer, the obama campaign lawyer, is the one who instituted this at the fecfec staff went to lois learner, lois lane lerner. he ended up as the irs chief counsel. on the stuff on the nsa -- this is part of the same attack on american democracy, we have people getting up here with these canards saying, look at our program, we got all t
, but in a report today is saying very much otherwise. "the new york times" reporting the nsa is searching e-mails and text messages sent to and from the united states. combine that with news the irs was altering details of investigations done by the drug enforcement adminisation, and my next guess says american civil liberties are under attack. seems like every other day there's a new development in the nsa, the snooping, the violation of the fourth amendment. talk to us about this new one where the nsa admits if an e-mail sent to and from, they're going look into the e-mail text, the text of the messages. >> looking at the text, looking at the met -- metta data. the obama administration released an internal report saying hundreds of millions of americans have had their stuff looked through and the foreign intelligence surveillance court toll the nsa to knock it off or they were violating things too regularly. to have obama in that next week say, oh, there's no domestic spying program, it shows not just his own kind of problem with voracity, these people operated without any control for so
think that nsa has got this whole scandal beat. why is no one investigating them for nonsense they are doing today, and spending this time going after a bank for a meltdown that happened oh, i think i it was -- 5 neil: all right, well, better late than never, did you ask yourself why now? why a sudden interest in going after banks 5 years after the great meltdown. not a peep about going after nsa for surviolence abuses that keep piling up. it was collecting thousands of everybody mails from ordinary americans, with zero terror ties, es nada, zilch, zippo, yikes, that is what mike buc huck abby said. this is happening now. these -- these abuses grow by almost the hour, we're going back in time. i just think we have it backwards. >> if you remember the enemy of the state, with gene hackman and will smith, at the time you thought this is such amazing science fig, you go back -- science fiction, you go back and watch now we're living it a lot of americans wake up to fact this our government has been more intrusive judge our lives -- into our lives than we could becombe comfortable

's nothing phony about an nsa program that almost failed on the house floor. >> according to data from pew majorities across all groups express little or no trust in washington. >> you need to have trust in government for the government to work effectively. >> good evening. perino. in the latest news about the nsa giving americans yet another reason to distrust our government, "the washington post" revealing that the nsa has broken privacy rules, thousands of times, every year since 2008. and the chief judge of the secret court that's supposed to police the government's spying program says that the court has limited ability to do its job. the nsa issuing this response, quote, when nsa makes a mistake and carrying out its foreign intelligence mission, the agency reports the issue internally and to federal overseers and aggressively gets to the bottom of it. congressman goudi joins us. thank you for being here on a friday evening. let me ask you. when you first heard of this news last night, were you surprised or in line with what you thought was probably happening? >> well, dana, i would li
: it is not just the nsa giving the creeps, it is the creeps at the irs giving americans a bigger case of the creeps. you are so out of your mind area did next. neil: what is that i keep telling you about the best defense is always an even better offense. belittled and badgered still coming out at it tooth and nail continuing their harassment of tea party groups on invaded. still pestering, still intimidating. still fuming. far from slowing down as you predicted and as you and your colleagues experienced, still unbowed are. >> they have gotten a bit greedy. they did effectively unde undere the efficacy of these groups at the election. the activism was somewhat oppressed by the fact they couldn't deal with the irs, they were afraid. even quoted in the "wall street journal" saying she would go places and there would be empty chairs and everybody questioning whether the tea party was agood label anymore. but this has backfired on the irs because now at the tea party patriots, their donationare tripled, the staff has doubled because people are seeing this not as a conservative versus liber
.s. embassies. on friday president obama announced proposals to change the oversight and transparency of the nsa. speakers included congressman peter king who chairs the homeland security subcommittee on counterterrorism and intelligence, former new york times reporter judith miller and fox business network host john stossel. the event was cohosted by the manhattan institute, the weekly standard and the group concerned veterans for america. >> we want to thank you all for coming. i'm not normally intimidated when i speak at these events, but now that i didn't realize gunny sergeant duff was here, now i'm very worried. [laughter] it's great to have all of you. i also want to join in thanking those of you who serve for your service and to say how pleased i am that pete king and john stossel have agreed to be here and also judy miller and gary bernstein who will be joining us for the panel. pete, when i saw -- i saw pete in afghanistan, i was visiting with a couple of people looking around for about a week in late 2011, and pete had volunteered, reuped and gone to afghanistan then to help train the
issues which are front and center on the minds of many americans. >> don't put the nsa with the irs. they are totally different problems and issues and i believe there is ample evidence that the irs abused the player and daughter liz a political candidate. words from the father/daughter duomaking headlines. >> i am harris faulkner. how will the united states respond to the crisis in syria that has millions of people pouring over the borders trying to escape the slaughter house that their country has become. it could create now havens for terrorist and american national security time talked about the next step and talked about what is unfolding, pictures that are so hard to look at and impossible to aunticate and seem to go along with chemical attacks in syria. and more on the high level meeting for you. and first a deadly game of back and forth played out at this houred in of syria. they are accusing the anti- government rebels of using chemical weapons and others call that a thinly veiled attempt from the nerve gas assault on a neighborhood they say. defense secretary chuck hagel a
lowest bid, it should be best value. >> reporter: controversy continuing over the nsa data mining, former u.n. ambassador says there doesn't seem to be a problem as long as the antennas are going out, not in. >> this is what intelligence is supposed to do, we spy on foreigners. i think the greatest criticism one scan make of foreign intelligence gathering is that there's not enough of it. >> reporter: next week marks the end of the holy month of ramadan when there's usually increase of attacks in war zones, nothing like the wide area u.s. embassies will close. >> wendell goler from the white house, thanks. >>> as wendell reported, closing several embassies at the same time is rare. it happened in march of 2003 in some gulf countries over protesters against the invasion of iraq. in september of 2002, nine embassies closed on the eve of the first anniversary of 9/11. a year and a half earlier, four facilities in south america were shut down because of security concerns. and in 1999, six embassies in africa were closed also for security reasons. >>> now from preventing a terror strike to cl
for myself over the weekend. first of all, let me make a few comments. nsa picked up some chatter. it is about time nsa got back to the business they're supposed to be in. secondly, al qaeda has made a point for years now not to use cell phones and other communications. dana made a point before the show maybe they're desperate. my guess is some of it may be just to throw us off. the third thing, if we hadn't closed embassies and something happened, you all would be all over it. and the last thing i will say, embassies have been closed the last 75 years as circumstances dictate. this may be more closures, goes to teddy roosevelt when they closed some. i would not consider this american weakness. and also the yemens, not rogue or research, clearly upset, right winger. >> the bar scene is where all of the freaks hang out. that's the deal. >> dana, critics at the nsa would say this is really convenient for this to happen while the programs are under fire and snowden is embarrassing us, now we can come say look at all that we uncovered. >> i am uncomfortable talking about intelligent t
at moscow's airport ed snowden on the move for the first time. the nsa leaker is said to leaving the airport officially entering russia after granting temporary asylum. vladmir putin has made a move. i'm bill hemmer. welcome here to "america's newsroom." you have come back for more. >> i decided to try another day. i'm heather childers in for martha maccallum. snowden has been in limbo at the moscow airport since june 20 third. the u.s. wanted russia to send him back home to face prosecution for spilling secrets about the u.s. surveillance program. instead russia granted him a year of asylum. bill: we wonder what is next. greg palkot live in london. there are a lot of rumors that he could go to cuba or venezuela. what is the latest there, greg. >> reporter: hello, bill and heather. by our calculations about an hour 1/2 ago he left his limbo status there at the terminal at the moscow airport. edward snowden the nsa leaker, is now traveling into russia. traveling to an undisclosed location according to his lawyer. indisclosed because of security concerns. he also, we have just learned, traveli
have posted and explanations. so i will talk to you very thatly about the nsa, and is something i have been very involved with, trying to rein in the out-of-control nature of what is going on right now with our surveillance programs, and that is something that i have spent, as you have probably seen from the news, a lot of time doing over the past couple of months. doing himsa has been as has been declassified now, is collecting the phone records of every single person in the united states, regardless of whether you are under suspicion of anything, so, in other words, the nsa has a database, and they actually collect every time you call someone. they collect the call that was made. they tell you which numbers were connected, the duration of the call, and they keep other sorts onwhat they call metadata your calls. they have been doing this for quite some time, but it was thently disclosed, and problem, of course, is they are doing it without any suspicion. it does not matter if you have a connection to a terrorist or not. they decided that they have the authority to gather up everyone's
rules for the nsa. but will his plan for the agency's controversy surveillance limit its scope. we will take a look at the details. >>> detroit may be the biggest u.s. city to ever declare bankruptcy. as it tries to fight its way back from a full-on collapse seems like the motor city's woes could have a major impact on other cities across the as we 9 embassies and consulate that were closed as a result of an al qaeda terror threat will reopen tomorrow, we will take a look at what motivated the change and what this means for an apparently ongoing threat. >> they had the capacity to go after our embassies. they have the capacity potentially to go after our businesses. they had the capacity to be destabilizing and disruptive in countries where the security apparatus are weak. i should definitely do laundry more often. yeah. by the time i do there's all these mystery stains. i mean is it coffee? could be gravy. yeah. so now i u tide boost with my tide. it's double powerful for when things get doubliffy. [ female announcer ] together, tide and tide boost double your power against stain
, gentler nsa, pretty intrusive but maybe this time with a pretty please. the president announcing steps to make sure government spies don't overstep. but there is more oversight, more transparency on the way. but did he do anything today to quell the controversy? to ed henry at the white house. ed? >> good to see you. you heard the president there. he started the entire news conference with a brief mention about his economic road show but surprisingly, instead of focusing on that, the really did hit the nsa issue hard and shows he is on defense on it. trying to show that he is taking steps to quote-unquote reform it, quote-unquote, add transparency and the like. but as you note there are critics who will say that is not enough, too little too late. the president i would note also on defense in this news conference over the current terror threat that tie back to the nsa surveillance programs, the terror threat in the middle east and whether the president misled the company when he said al qaeda was on the run. you heard my colleague, john carl of abc ask, well, how are they dismated if n
is not a fan of big government, i share many of those worries. i'm asked constantly about the n.s.a. stuff. i don't know enough of what's going on. but i have this guttural reaction where, no, i don't want my data scooped up vs. the analytical counterterrorism side of me saying, i want their data scooped up. there is something to be had there, a conversation to be had there. i just say that, you know, when you have that conversation, you shouldn't let it -- and i don't think you guys do this, but some people i think now are defining the current threat environment and how things are evolving around the globe with the impetus to wrap this up because they want to declare it over and an end to it. s there's a danger that you go too far in your thinking in that and think you're just going to say it's all over with because i don't want to deal with it anymore. the bottom line is our enemy gets a vote. >> we covered a lot of ground. but there's obviously still a lot of ground we could cover. let me thank our two panelists very much. [applause] and thank you all for coming and i hope to to see you ag
people from benghazi and the nsa and the drone debate and the complete and utter failure of our horrible economy. >> you said all that needs to be said. >> i would just offer on top of that one portuguese water dog, get yourself a yellow lab. right? come on. the other side is the name bo and sunny, these are the names people give dogs when they are not the ones naming them. okay, bo and sunny. if obamas had a sense of humor they would call them achmed and lennon or something like that. no? >> i want to get back to being serious. at a time when americans can't find one job how shameful is it for the president and his family to have two dogs? it is a slap in the face of the american public. >> i am going to say something controversial. i like this dog. i want to pet this dog. >> go to commercial! >> bars and tone! >> i want to give the dog a hug. he has little white boots. sunny, i want to give it a hug and kiss it and pet the dog. i will say it. >> you are like the mayor of san diego. >> i want to get back to something buck was saying. sunny is a portuguese water dog. i guess an american
to a shout out to the robot from lost in space. this still does not compute because the nsa is replacing human beings with computers to be senseless new bond people does not mean the agency still is not stepping on people. what it is saying is that a machine is not going to leak such news to people. are we not missing here's something? the agency is still spending on people. we are supposed to feel better because it is a machine. it is not human. i am telling you, it is in human. it is still a mess. what do you think of it? >> move like -- moves like this are designed to high accountability. when you remove people from the equation, you can silence people and control them to some extent, but they're is a kind of randomness to people. when you assign machines to do all the information transfer in to manage this you run into problems with the people that the nsa did not know what is going on. look at what is happening with hamper frequency trading were the traders running those algorithms, programs don't always know exactly what they're doing and how the interactions or. you collected thin
of the problems with the nsa's talking points is that the nsa has, for a very long time, used word games, when it describes authorities publicly. those word games are based upon very strange and unordinary definitions the nsa assigned to some of the words that they use to defend their programs. >> in the "wall street journal's" report, the nsa does defend its practices. a spokeswoman says it's a very legal and respectful of americans' privacy. i she writes if americans communications are inadvertently collected during the process they use minimization procedures approved by the attorney general and used to protect the privacy of united states persons. you learned last week we did learn the nsa breached privacy rules and overstepped its authority thousands of times. >> new revelations. >> i wouldn't be surprised if people weren't watching us right now. >> i don't think anybody's watching. well, let's see, until sinbad gets out here who's in this building. >>> did you know a-rod was suspended by baseball for 211 games and said i'm lawyering up and by the time the appeal happens the season will b
on that coming up next. plus, the nsa leaker, edward snowden, is reportedly trying to make himself comfortable in russia, at the home of another expatriate american. but how is he going to eat and earn a living and what does this say about the white house? and what does the white house say about this? next. the postal service is critical to our economy. delivering mail, medicine and packages, yet they're closing thousands of offices, slashing service and want to layoff over 100,000 workers. the postal service is recording financial losses, but not for reasons you might think. the problem? a burden no other agency or company bears. a 2006 law that drains $5 billion a year from post office revenue while the postal service is forced to overpay billions more into federal accounts. congress created this problem, and congress can fix it. >>> ed snowden has a new place to stay in russia with a group of american expatriates. the word from the lawyer representing the fugitive surveillance leaker. and it seems we have our first look at snowden leaving the moscow airport. today russian television broad
, if we're getting these constant reports out of the nsa that it went beyond just collecting over 115 million american phone records, to the latest news that is was every e-mail, every site folks went on so much information, so fast, they really couldn't even hold it that long because it was too massive to hold. that does raise the kind of concerns that senator paul has had, that chris christie seems to dismiss. >> but first of all, of course, we always need to be reviewing the scope of what the government is doing and whether it's justified, and that should be constant he reviewed. the problem is that the tactics the government uses to gather intelligence, the more public it is, eeasier for enemies to esaid it. so it's difficult to have an open debate. and there's so much misinformation in the press. i wouldn't dismiss these concerns offhand. if you're back home and you all of a sudden realize the government has the capable and is gathering information on every phone call made in america, you're concerned how that could be used not just by the government but by individuals working fo
. because not only edward snowden and other former nsa, outside contractors but people employed for their career west side the nsa have corroborated in this respect. the government has the ability to access from storage, the actual emails and texts that every american has sent in the past two and a half years and sound of telephone calls, voices that have made in the past two and a half years. example, the order signed by judge roger vincent in april of this year, four months ago, directed verizon to surrender the telephonic information on 113 million of its customers. that is more than half of the telephone base in the united states. president couldn't possibly not know that. >> neil: that is not, he said, the domestic surveillance program. >> i don't mow what the president means in his terminology. if capturing phone calls and emails and capturing texts of every american is not a domestic spying program, then nothing is. >> neil: you are very good lawyer and good judge besides. what he is saying if the intent isn't to spy on those in the united states. he is saying i it's not
: with the revelations about the nsa, irs come in your view should we be paranoid? >> guest: i never want to encourage people to be paranoid because that's a clinical term. it is certainly good to be skeptical and suspicious a lot of the time. i am all for good, solid investigative journalism is grounded in facts and evidence. >> host: jesse walker, who was one of your favorite conspiracies or leaders from our history? >> guest: well, some of the interesting things in the book are people you wouldn't expect. for example, john quincy adams was very much afraid of freemasons and their influence in the united states. there is a quote from him in there that in the election of 18 dirty too, saying the important thing isn't whether andrew jackson or henry clay wins the election. it's what we can do to stop the encroaching power. so you are surprised to hear them discussing any terms. the most familiar figure -- i wouldn't call him a favorite because he was a terrible person, but there is a guy named shawn tied, who in the 70s was on the circuit in churches saying he was a former are and telling these very e
